6 Music's Cerys Matthews sat in for Dermot this afternoon. Having previously enjoyed her 6 music show, I was certainly going to have a listen to her on R2 this afternoon. I wasn't disappointed. What do others think?

I heard about half the show and, not having listened to her shows on 6 music, thought she was one of the best stand ins I have heard on Radio 2

I'd certainly be very happy for her to permanently replace the present incumbent sooner rather than later Smile

Yes, I heard about half of the show and she sounded good to me. I normally switch off after POTP finishes.

It was my intention to listen to Cerys' 6 On 2 show live last Saturday, but I got the timings mixed up and missed it! Embarassed Thank heavens for 'Listen Again'. As it's a miserable evening on television, I'm listening to it now, and what a good show it was. Yes, some of the tracks played will be familiar to the Radio 2 audience, but there's also a fair amount of less known stuff too. Here's the playlist: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01gb1gj If you can, it's worth a listen while it's still available.

I've listened to her programme on 6 Music from the beginning and would recommend it...10 to 12 every Sunday morning.

Wasn't it just.? I'd never heard of them before, Becky, but thought it was beautiful music, even at that time on a Sunday morning. The piano playing was so unusual for the type of music they were singing.

I hadn't heard of them before either,Raver ... a quick Google reveals one of them was formerly in The Unthanks (Belinda O'Hooley ) ..in this article it mentions her " inventive piano playing"
